How to Wear Metallics for Day

Metallics are going to be big for the next two seasons (as seen recently at VAMFF & MBFWA) which is naturally great to add a little extra something-something to your outfits for going out at night – dinner, drinks, girls night sequins & sparkle will have you sorted. However when it comes to our wardrobe we often want our clothes to be secret agents, adapting to any situation so how do you wear metallics for day, without looking like you just came straight from the dance floor?

It’s actually pretty simple, it’s what you pair with your metallic pieces that change its’ natural dressed up factor. Structured pieces (heels, tailored pants, tailored jackets etc) will add to the dressy feel so you need to think in opposite terms. Slouchy pieces therefore will lend their casual vibe to dressy metallics counteracting the night out vibe and allowing sequins & shiny materials to work just as hard for you during the day.

So what are good casual options to team with metallics? Casual sneakers, flat shoes, slouchy pants (perfect for those that love to rock a drop crotch), tank tops, tshirts and anything slightly oversized are perfect options for downplay metallics.
